SAN ANTONIO — San Antonio-based Santikos Entertainment will be taking over a former Alamo Drafthouse location on the city's west side.
According to a spokesperson from the company, the theater chain will open up a location at the Drafthouse's Westlakes location, which closed during the coronavirus pandemic and did not reopen.
Alamo Drafthouse closed several theaters, including the Westlakes location, after filing for bankruptcy after the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in March as part of an asset purchase agreement. Just three months later in June, the Austin-based company announced they were out of bankruptcy and opening five locations outside of Texas.
Alamo Drafthouse's two remaining San Antonio-area locations have reopened, as of June.
The new renovated Santikos theater at Westlakes will feature a spacious new bar and an arcade featuring almost 30 games. Santikos is also adding new seats, new projectors, and a much-needed deep cleaning.
Meanwhile, Santikos opened its 10th location on August 20 in New Braunfels, where it also took over a former Alamo Drafthouse.
